A Blacksburg-based photographer, elopement guide, do-your-own-thing-for-your-wedding advocate, dog lover, who believes in living consciously and slowing down the pace of life a bit to savor it more.
I love local food, ice cream, being active, living in the mountains and being a mama to my two little girls and three dogs. I love to travel, but the Blue Ridge Mountains are home and I'm pretty obsessed with sharing them with you!
We start with a phone call to make sure I'm the right person to capture your beautiful day. We'll talk about what you're dreaming about and address any questions or concerns you have.
I'll send a contract and invoice via email. Everything can be completed electronically! Once I get those back I'll send over my wedding planning guide. Elopement/intimate wedding couples also get a questionnaire so I can help with any aspects of planning you might need.
By the time your wedding day rolls around we will feel like friends. And you get to sit back and enjoy your day knowing that your memories are being documented boldly, honestly and authentically
Thank you! We will be in touch with you shortly!
Kara was such a pleasure to work with for our recent intimate wedding in October. She put us at ease from our first conversation and quickly made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. Her candid pictures captured our day so perfectly and her encouragement to take some pictures in the rain, made for some of the best shots of the whole wedding. Kara was professional, responsive, and accommodating through our whole process. We are so incredibly glad we picked Kara and can't recommend her enough.

We’ll always be able to look back and remember how we felt in those moments, something that is truly invaluable.
Kara made my wedding day happen! Everything from finding the location, helping me find a florist, and pick out an airbnb. If it wasn't for her the day wouldn't have happened so easily. Through the entire process Kara hung in there every time I changed my mind (67 times to be exact, including my wedding date!) and handled all of it so kindly. She builds a quick relationship with you and brings out the most real emotion in the pictures.
Kara shot our wedding and put together the most beautiful wedding videos that we will cherish forever! Her adventurous personality shined through all of her creative ideas. Kara was a joy to work with and I’ll never forget our wedding day splashing in the creek thanks to her!
